Fun Chess Event at Reykjavik Chess Open: Hand & Brain Girls' vs Boys' Event Video
From the sidelines of the Reykjavik Chess Open: One of the fun things about chess tournaments is of course socializing, meeting old friends and gaining new ones. One way to do that is to have a friendly chess game, perhaps over 1-2 beers or a glass of white wine.
One fun way to play is teams, and one fun variant of that is Hand&Brain. In this variant, one member of the team is the “hand” and the other one “brain”. The hand announces the piece to move and the brain makes the move. No discussion about the game can go on between the team members.
In the following game, the girls' team was suspected of having whispered one or two moves during the end Either way, a nice combination!
